Very strong looking line up here…..
I’m a very big Overwrite fan, and he was impressive enough on Sunday, but will this come too soon.
Stablemate Dark Vision catches the eye, but it’s another from the yard who catches my eye though, and that’s Cognac, who I thought showed a fine attitude at Kempton. Maybe not in the class of Dark Vision, but I like him at 10’s.
I’ve always liked Chatez, but he’s let me down a couple of times, and he’s double booked.
In the same ownership, Motakhaayel and Afaak also appeal, and that’s enough for me to sit this one out Antepost.
Very definitely one for Final Decs.July 1, 2020 at 11:46 #1492317coops72Participant

i like arthurian fable – stable going okJuly 3, 2020 at 12:44 #1492538
It doesn’t look any easier to find the winner, but it’s easier to whittle down the shortlist, with only one of mine making it.
I will definitely chance Chatez, but hoping for bigger than the 16’s.July 3, 2020 at 21:35 #1492593KevMcParticipant

Really like Montatham but he’s too short at 7/2. If he drifted to 9/2 he’d be a bet.
One I’ve taken a chance on is Acquitted 11/1.
Curtis went too soon on him for me at Newcastle and was picked up by SJP winner Palace Pier in the final furlong. Was a big gamble that day aswell.
He then ran dismally at Ascot and was tailed off, but I think that was a mix of the ground & run coming too soon. Hopefully an easy time there and an easy couple of weeks has freshened him up and he’s ready to run his race again. Watson doing a low weight for the ride a big positive also.July 4, 2020 at 08:21 #1492623botchy1Participant

Well worth a look back at Qaysar’s run FTO at Newmarket. Incredible really.
Pogo went on to bolt up in a listed race last weekend and the Hannon horse just had no where to go in the Hunt Cup last time.July 4, 2020 at 18:50 #1492762FinalFurlong91Participant

I backed acquitted at ascot because of his run behind palace pier
He ran absolutely no race then but I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt as off 93 I’d be very surprised if he didn’t have a few lbs in hand
8.6 on the exchange seems a fair priceJuly 4, 2020 at 18:55 #1492763
Chatez hitting 22’s now, hoping to see him even bigger before I have a go.July 4, 2020 at 20:01 #1492777TheKryptonFactorParticipant

Expect Acquitted to bolt up, only concern would be the run last time (surely too bad to be true).July 5, 2020 at 10:34 #1492857He Didnt Like GroundParticipant

While the ground is not ideal Gallopi has been in good form and I’ll play e.w at a nice price , I’m still waiting on the yard to really hit its stride but I don’t think that’s to far awayJuly 5, 2020 at 11:40 #1492865jimmy giminiParticipant

Dark vision at these prices i think. Montatham way too short to take dark vision won better than 3 lbs imo looking closely at the last race came back from further bot clear and bustles between horses. I know it’s a handicap and off 106 its a tall order. The top two in the market only have to run a couple of lb either way to beat each other they both still at an improvement age. Its a strong headwind and up hill sandown I think dark vision will see it out better and 15/8 vs 4/1 ( waiting to try and get 9/2) is too much of a discrepancy. My main concern would be the possibly better handicapped horses in ACQUITED (if bouncing back) and ViA SERENDIPITY or even MUTASAAMY off a low weight. so I’d never take this short on the fav in this handicap. Whether the fav wins obviously got a good chance but 15/8 too shortJuly 5, 2020 at 11:43 #1492867jimmy giminiParticipant

Its more like 11/8July 5, 2020 at 11:46 #1492869
I’ve decided to swerve Chatez for now.
He’s out to 40’s now, and though I’m not averse to a big price, it’s a fair old drift.
I’ll bet him in running if he looks like challenging, but I’ll obviously miss the 40’s in that case.July 5, 2020 at 15:11 #1492914
Nice EW price HDLG
Very pleased I sat that one out, but I’d be taking Zwaayan out of it.July 5, 2020 at 15:24 #1492919He Didnt Like GroundParticipant
